The DEPOT HOTEL is a charming neighborhood restaurant located in a stone building just a block off the Plaza in Sonoma. Locals and visitors to the Wine Country enjoy Tuscan-inspired cuisine in spacious dining rooms, and on the terraces of the Italian garden and reflection pool. In addition to products made in-house, the Sonoma wine country offers an abundance of new artisanal products to enjoy. The wine list is heavily laden with local Sonoma wines as well as wines from Italy. Come join us for lunch or dinner...or just drop in for some small plates of antipasti and a glass of wine as well. Take-out is always available ...

Went for dinner and discovered the Ahi Tuna sold out during lunch, wasn’t happy about that and the pizza we shared had a distinct fish smell/taste to it but that might of been the toppings.

The ambiance really makes this spot a winner. The food is solid but nothing to write about other than it’s good value, plentiful, and likely consistent. The outdoor dining is lovely out back surrounding a large pool. Lots of time to leisure over a meal in a pretty place.

Lovely setting around the pool and our server Anna was extraordinary. Food arrived quickly and very hot. The food could use a little more finesse but the prices were very fair.

Historical “hidden” gem off the Sonoma Plaza that we regret not visiting sooner. Enjoyed a perfect Easter dinner of a shared Caesar salad, Dungeness crab cannelloni for me & my husband had chicken parm that was served with some tortellini & green beans. A little veg with some acidity with the rich crab cannelloni on an otherwise colorless plate would have been nice but it was delish! We also shared the limoncello cake with mango sauce for dessert, which was the perfect ending. Service was pleasant & attentive without being over the top annoying. Atmosphere outdoors with the sound of the pool fountain was very relaxing. Highly recommend.

The Tonnarelli was excellent--the sauce a garlicky, tomato-ey, nicely salted triumph--and the limoncello cake delightful, light and tangy. Our daughter enjoyed the salmon dish and the tiramisu. The ambiance is lovely, perfect for an era of outdoor seating, and we had a very enjoyable evening.

The restaurant did an excellent job at ensuring there were enough space heaters to keep diners warm at outdoor dining. We weren’t cold during our 2 hour meal. Service was great. The black spaghetti with seafood was my personal fave.

The outdoor patio is a lovely place to share a meal. Almost a throw back to another time but still has charm. The food is quite good. Not fine dining but a recommended place to enjoy lunch or dinner in the town of Sonoma.

We've been going to The Depot Hotel for many years and have never been disappointed.
We've celebrated many birthdays there and recently our 50th wedding anniversary. The food is always top notch and the wait staff is friendly and attentive. You can't beat the lovely location whether dining inside or outside around the beautiful pool and gardens.
Their entrees are priced competitively for Sonoma and the servings are generous.

We celebrated our daughter’s birthday while in Sonoma for the weekend and made dinner reservations at 7pm. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and immediately taken to the outdoor patio. We were seated at a patio table that was situated between two portable heaters. Service was efficient and our servers friendly and helpful. All 4 of us loved our food. I definitely will return.

Veal scallopini was delicious. Mushrooms were very flavorful. The black squid ink seafood pasta was a little on the salty side but tasty. There was so much seafood I wanted more pasta noodles to go with it.
Waitress was very attentive and took care of us nicely. Reasonably priced. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

This is a great restaurant especially during these COVID times. Their outdoor seating are tables around a pool with beautiful greeneries around. They provide ample heating since it’s been cold lately. The food was wonderful. The pork chop was tender and delicious while the Tonnarelli was to die for. Never had black pasta before with seafood and they made it just perfect. The service was friendly and knowledgeable. Can’t believe we’ve never been here before even though we live in the area. I guess it’s because they are a bit off Sonoma Square. But this is one restaurant we’re definitely coming back to.

They only supplied a small portable heater underneath our table that didn't warm the four of us at all. Our dinner would have been much more enjoyable if we weren't shivering. They do have large patio heaters in other areas of their patio.

The Depot is always a favorite when I visit Sonoma County. The food is consistently good to excellent, the setting generally quiet and casual-elegant. The wait staff is attentive and doesn't intrude. Overall, The Depot is a great place to dine for lunch or dinner. FYI, I ordered the curry clam chowder during my last visit...YUM!
